Is the Michelin Primacy MXM4 the Best of the Best?

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 by Doc Horvath

Michelin Primacy MXM4One of our most frequent requests for passenger car tires is for something quiet and comfortable, often regardless of price. Based on our testing and customer feedback, our best recommendation is typically the Michelin Primacy MXM4.


The Primacy MXM4 (which is not to be confused with the similar Primacy MXV4) has quickly become one of our customer's favorite choices for standard and luxury sedans and coupes from Honda, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The newer MXM4 features Michelin's Green X technology for lower rolling resistance while still providing responsive handling in dry, wet and even light snow conditions.



Our extensive evaluations on the Performance Test Track course and Real World Road Ride loop have shown the Primacy MXM4 to be head and shoulders above similar Grand Touring All-Season tires when it comes to comfort, handling and longevity.

I changed from 19" wheels & summer tires to 18" wheels and (winter) Blizzak tires on my BMW 335 Xdrive sedan. What tire pressure should I be maintaining on those tires?

Assuming you are using 225/40R18, 32 PSi would be the minimum. I'd have you use 35 PSi to have a little reserve.
